Leptin promotes IL‑18 secretion by activating the NLRP3 inflammasome in RAW 264.7 cells.

Leptin is a cytokine‑like hormone secreted by adipocytes, which serves to control energy expenditure and metabolism. In addition, leptin may modulate the innate and adaptive immune responses. The innate immune cell sensor nucleotide‑binding oligomerization domain‑like receptor family pyrin domain‑containing 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome is mainly expressed in myeloid immune cells, including macrophages. The NLRP3 inflammasome serves a pivotal role in the development and maintenance of autoimmunity and inflammation. The expression levels of caspase‑1, apoptosis‑associated speck‑like protein containing a CARD, interleukin (IL)‑18, IL‑1β and leptin are significantly reduced in the white adipose tissue of nonsteroidal anti‑inflammatory drug‑activated gene‑1 transgenic mice. However, the association between leptin and the NLRP3 inflammasome has not yet to be determined. The aim of the present study, was to explore the role of leptin on NLRP3 inflammasome. In order to do this, IL‑1β and IL‑18 expression levels were investigated in RAW 264.7 cells after incubation with leptin of increasing doses by Elisa or reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction, and to assess whether IL‑1β and IL‑18 were affected after caspase‑1 activity being inhibited by an inhibitor or by silencing NLRP3 expression. The results of the present study demonstrated that leptin enhanced the mRNA and protein expression levels of IL‑18 in RAW 264.7 cells via activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome. This is achieved partly by enhancing the production of reactive oxygen species and K+ efflux. Therefore, leptin may be considered a novel activator and modulator of the NLRP3 inflammasome.

Autophagy Inhibition Contributes to ROS-Producing NLRP3-Dependent Inflammasome Activation and Cytokine Secretion in High Glucose-Induced Macrophages.

Type 2 diabetes is a persistent inflammatory response that impairs the healing process. We hypothesized that stimulation with high glucose following a pro-inflammatory signal would lead to autophagy inhibition, reactive oxygen species (ROS) production and eventually to the activation of the Nod-like receptor protein (NLRP) -3.

Release mechanism of high mobility group nucleosome binding domain 1 from lipopolysaccharide-stimulated macrophages.

Alarmins are identified as endogenous mediators that have potent immune-activating abilities. High mobility group nucleosome binding domain 1 (HMGN1), a highly conserved, non-histone chromosomal protein, which binds to the inner side of the nucleosomal DNA, regulates chromatin dynamics and transcription in cells. Furthermore, HMGN1 acts as a cytokine in the extracellular milieu by inducing the recruitment and maturation of antigen-presenting cells (dendritic cells) to enhance Th1-type antigen-specific immune responses. Thus, HMGN1 is expected to act as an alarmin, when released into the extracellular milieu. The present study investigated the release mechanism of HMGN1 from macrophages using mouse macrophage‑like RAW264.7 cells. The results indicated that HMGN1 was released from lipopolysaccharide (LPS)‑stimulated RAW264.7 cells, accompanied by cell death as assessed by the release of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). Subsequently, the patterns of cell death involved in HMGN1 release from LPS‑stimulated RAW264.7 cells were determined using a caspase‑1 inhibitor, YVAD, and a necroptosis inhibitor, Nec‑1. YVAD and Nec‑1 did not alter LPS‑induced HMGN1 and LDH release, suggesting that pyroptosis (caspase‑1‑activated cell death) and necroptosis are not involved in the release of HMGN1 from LPS‑stimulated RAW264.7 cells. In addition, flow cytometric analysis indicated that LPS stimulation did not induce apoptosis but substantially augmented necrosis, as evidenced by staining with annexin V/propidium iodide. Together these findings suggest that HMGN1 is extracellularly released from LPS‑stimulated RAW264.7 macrophage‑like cells, accompanied by unprogrammed necrotic cell death but not pyroptosis, necroptosis or apoptosis.

Thiol alkylation inhibits the mitogenic effects of platelet-derived growth factor and renders it proapoptotic via activation of STATs and p53 and induction of expression of caspase1 and p21(waf1/cip1).

Thiols provide the major intracellular redox milieu and can undergo reversible oxidation and reduction. To understand the role of thiols in redox signaling events, we have studied the effect of N-ethylmaleimide, a specific thiol alkylating agent, on platelet-derived growth factor-BB (PDGF-BB)-induced mitogenesis in vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC). Thiol alkylation inhibited PDGF-BB-induced expression of the Fos and Jun family proteins and AP-1 activity in VSMC. Thiol alkylation also inhibited PDGF-BB-induced expression of cyclin A and growth in these cells. In contrast, thiol alkylation enhanced and sustained the effect of PDGF-BB on the activation of the Jak STAT pathway, and this event was correlated with inhibition of protein tyrosine phosphatase lB activity. Thiol alkylation via inducing the expression of p21(waf1/cip1) in a STAT1- and p53-dependent manner antagonized the downregulation of this cell cycle inhibitory molecule by PDGF-BB. The inhibition of AP-1 and activation of STATs, particularly STAT1, by thiol alkylation correlated with increased production of active caspase 1 and apoptosis in VSMC. Together, these findings suggest a role for thiols in mediating mitogenic and/or apoptotic signaling events in VSMC. These results also show that a sustained change in the intracellular thiol redox state can convert a mitogen into a death promoter.
